I need to replace my headlight globes, i went looking yesterday but i couldn't find the right ones. The globe that was in there already is a H4R 12V60/35W HD. Does anyone know where to get them or what alternative globe i can use?

You can get them from a bike shop.

Alternatively you can use car 60/55w ones by bending back one of the tabs. I've been running them for 4 years without a problem, though some people have had melted contacts in the switchgear due to the extra powah.
It's also not great for battery life so I run a battery tender, but you should have one of those anyway :)

A good all in one solution if you have the loots is Eclipze's upgrade kit.

They come highly recommended.

1+ Eclipze's upgrade kit. if you just use normal 60/55w you gonna kill your battery and seeing yourself push start your bike very often

That's weird.
In the Honda manual for a MC19 I think it said they were a 12v 3w globe for some of the accesories.
All the T-5s are 1.2w, and the right size seems to be a T-6.5
It sucks cause I've got to order some Narva 6.5s at Repco, no auto places I went to stock the 6.5s.
Anyone know where to get the 3 watters???

If you top up with the spare fluid kit then you should be right for a little bit longer (small vial located in your boot). Once this has been used up then recommend you grab Tony's upgrade kit when you can..
